ICS-West is also accepting lottery applications through February 9. Families in the Bartram, Sayre, and Overbrook high school catchments receive enrollment preference. If you have friends, family, and neighbors in these catchments, please encourage them to apply and to spread the word! And also check out their incredibly cool podcast series.

Tis’ The Season for Words of Thanks for our ICS Staff, Teachers & Administrators!

The staff party planners are busy preparing for the ICS staff party later this month. ICS families have traditionally sent beautiful words of thanks, appreciation and kindness towards the ICS staff to be displayed at the party. Nothing is more powerful and personal than the written word! So feel free to wax poetic or simply say “thank you” to a particular staff or teacher, a grade level team, or group.

Please send your messages of thanks to Tr. Susan. Thank you!

Lost & Found

The Lost & Found is getting full! Be sure to stop by or remind your students to check it for that missing jacket they love, and be sure to clearly label all outerwear and belongings with first and last names. If they need help searching, they can ask Tr. Adriane for assistance.
